Rajagopalachari. These two remarkable advocates for peace and justice discuss the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi in light of the racial and political crisis that our country faces today.

The conversation will be moderated by Michele Minter, Vice Provost for Institutional Equity and Diversity, Princeton University. Sponsored by the Princeton University Office of Religious Life and Public Lecture Series.
